My first figure purchase, and maintaining respect with your nizzles

As a tuff guy with a lot of people who look up to and/or fear me, I know that dabbling in this anime lark is a dangerous medium to mess with, lest it completely destroy the street cred that I fought so hard to build. With this, it's important to set boundries for oneself if you want to maintain such a precious commodity.

Such as, I'd always said to myself that watching fansubs was okay. Even if it is an absurd amount, there's still no harm there. Buying the DVDs if I really dug the series too, was also okay. Nothing wrong with wanting to rewatch something, and school your fellow thugs about the awesomeness of FLCL. But buying figurines and other indirect merchandise? That's where I drew the line.

Well the day arrived. I finally got my order from Hobby Link.

To top it off, I don't even have a clue what she's from. Something called WaGa is the extent of my knowledge. All I understand is that I crumbled when I saw this PVC loli listed:

Note: I'm told that the correct etiquette when blogging about anime figures is to discuss the seam lines and modeling detail, take photos of said figurine's panties out in public while people hide their children from you, and to then order two-hundred Rei variants.

Well that's not going to happen for a number of reasons, but I will steal some pictures from HLJ instead.


The Dirge of My Wallet


I mean look, she's wearing a pumpkin for a skirt. A FREAKIN PUMPKIN! In the words of JP Meyer, "Jailbait is orrrrsome. Ribbons is orrrsome. Walking about with a jack-o-lantern covering your pantsu is orrrsome."

Oh, don't worry, coz the pumpkin comes off so you can get all ecchi as well.

If I was to make any critical complaints it would be that I expected more shading on the pumpkin, ribbon, and wings especially (the rest are slight, but the wings are essentially one-tone). This looks to be a case of the contrast being hedged up in the commercial pictures, so I guess they suckered me with that one.

(Oh, and you can't stand her up without the pumpkin attached.. but w/o would just be kinda pervy anyway, so no skin off my back.)

She gets naked too


But aside from some minor quibbles, I can say I'm pretty happy with the purchase, which now allows me to sign a long-term contract where I end up spending stupid amounts of money on these things. Dammit.

One of my friends says that I'm now out of control, and is removing all affiliation with me, but after a quick assertation I think that I can make this new facet work for me and my rep, and come off looking well hard.

Still, I'm never touching a visual novel or galge. One has to have boundries after all.

That looks pretty cool.

The moment you start actually spending money on anime peripheries, you've lost. Next thing you know the amount of money in your bank account is going down faster than a cheerleader at a frat party, and your the space in your room and on your desk dwindles down to nothing.

You're doomed. DOOOOOOOOOOOOMED!

Hahaha, I can't tell if you are being extremely sarcastic about you being a tough guy or if it's actually true.
